We have been coming to Fuego regularly for quite some time and always loved the food and atmosphere. Usually the service is fair, but the atmosphere and food made up for it. We recently went again and it has changed. The Fuego Snapper was bland and not spicy at all. The fuego sauce was more like melted Velveeta on the other dishes. The salsa is no longer spicy and lacked flavor. The drinks were more watered down than usual. We asked our server about the change and were informed that the previous cook walked out and the owner is preparing everything himself. While we appreciate having a hands on approach to any business, this is one time that it may not be what is best. We were disappointed with the food and don't want to lose our favorite place. Please go back to the previous recipes. They were much better. We will try one more time. Hopefully it will be worth it adn we won't have to look for a new place to take our family and friends.
Took out-of-town guest for lunch on Saturday, and went early to get a table on the deck overlooking the ocean. Seats were warped. Service was slow, and we had to ask other servers to find our waitress. The Kush nachos were dry and only had 4 slices of jalapenos. It took another 15 minutes to get more of them. The mahi mahi fish tacos were very good. The other meal was O.K. It took 10 minutes for our busboy to locate our server so that we could order another round of drinks. When it was time to pay the check, we had to ask another server to find our check. With good service and that wonderful view, we could overlook average food. Unfortunately we did not have very good service. We'll wait another 6 months and try again.
Stopped in at late afternoon, downstairs bar. Chilly, but so worth the food and margaritas. Ronnie was the best. Chip and salsa was there immediately. Nachos, steak. entree unbelievable. Took home half, since it was so huge. Such a great spot.Go and enjoy.
My husband and I stopped over the weekend and it was wonderful. The food was some of the best I have had. I had the shrimp and grits and it was wonderful. The staff was great and the food was terrific. The manager came by and chatted with us for a while, he was so interested in our opinions and our impressions of the food. It was nice to have a manager that actually cared about his restaurant.
Was there on Sunday Oct 5th and had a wonder seat , but took over 5 minutes to get the gal that seated us to come back to get our drink order. When she did return I ordered a beer and my wife asked if she had any specialty drinks and she brought over a drink menu and said will be back to take her order. Waited 10 min for her return and didn't bring my beer and my wife order a mojito. Another 10 min goes by and she returned with my beer and a mojito with all black mint. The gal said it turned black when muddled, Wife sent it back and got a Cadillac Martguerita. 10 min later she brought her drink back. Never got chips and Salsa.
By this time I was ready for another beer and had to go to bar to get it. 10 more minutes pass to get our order placed for food which was pricey. Another 1/2 hour passes for food to arrive. Finished and had to go to the bar to get our bill and pay it. Took them over 5 minutes and there was a $5.00 error in addition and had to pay more after she put the order in the computer. Felt like $13.00 was to much for a Martguerita, but just glad to finally leave after an 1.5 hour. Never been that upset over a meal.
Service was adequate but the food was way overpriced for what we got. Burger was over cooked and the buns were stale. Greasy, lukewarm fries didn't help. Alcoholic beverage was sub par - didn't even drink half of it. Starting to wonder if the view was even worth what we paid for dinner. Next time we are in town, we will go to the old Manny's. Even though we voiced our unhappiness with the quality of the food, no attempt was made to take anything off our bill.
We ate at this restaurant within the past week. Waitress was very efficient in filling our every request. Atmosphere is nice but I'll bet it is even nicer after they light the fire pit! Food and margaritas were awesome! If you like margaritas, this is the place to go! It is right on Flagler Beach and the view is amazing. We sat at the outside tables and really enjoyed the wings and salad.
We were walking along Flagler Beach last night and heard some music. We decided to go over to the restaurant and had some cocktails. The band was great, and they played around the Fire Pit. We have eaten there before, and have enjoyed the food. Especially the chicken burrito's and fajita's.
It's really a nice place to go to and enjoy the view of the ocean and have some cocktails.
We've driven by this restaurant many times but never stopped in because of the past problems with service and food; however, six of us decided to try it for ourselves and were pleasantly surprised. We arrived around 5:30 on Friday evening thinking finding a table on the upstairs deck wouldn't be a problem. Forgot that it was Memorial Day weekend so we were wrong but we sat inside next to the window which was just fine. The music outside was somewhat loud but luckily there was a glass window that made it better. Our waiter, Chris was attentive and helpful, the atmosphere with the view of the beach and surroundings are festive and the food was wonderful. On Chris' recommendation, we decided to share a "Chicken Kush" appetizer which not only was great but enough to fee 6 of us. My wife and I decided to share a steak Fajita dinner and are glad we did because we had trouble finishing it. Martgueritas (both frozen and on the rocks) were terrific. Our friends enjoyed their selection of burritos and Chimichangas (??) too. No room for dessert but we'll definitely return.
